Each of our 230 guestrooms prove as comfortable as they are artful, with superb amenities and many with fabulous Philly skyline views. The bustling downtown hub is easily accessible and features high-end shopping, unique architecture, art galleries and innumerable restaurants.

    The perfect fit for our wedding

    We worked with Lauren Fitzpatrick and she was wonderful. She was very responsive to our requests and was very helpful with planning our wedding. The staff at the wedding was friendly and helpful. The ballroom was beautiful and fit our wedding group of 80 perfectly.

    From the first inquiry to the end of our wedding weekend stay, the staff at Hotel Palomar was accommodating, kind, and helpful. This boutique hotel simultaneously feels like home and like a luxurious indulgence! It is clean, well decorated, and unique! We celebrated our wedding ceremony this past weekend at Hotel Palomar and worked with Gary and Kito. They were a wonderful team, making sure our day went off without a hitch- and kept me out of my groom's sight! Our ceremony was intimate and charming, certainly due in part to the space. The ballroom is so pretty, and really can be transformed to fit any theme/ color scheme. Our vendors also worked directly with the hotel staff (usually Gary) and their communication was easy and productive.

    We also worked with David and Jessica for our room block. While only briefly working with Jessica, David was harassed with our many silly questions and was very helpful and responsive.

    We are already planning to stay at Hotel Palomar to celebrate every anniversary, we even considered staying this coming weekend! Wonderful place, wonderful people... if you're looking for a little something extra in the heart of center city, this is the place! We received so many compliments and we can't wait to go back!!

  • Silver Sound Entertainment Wedding DJs

    Writing for Silver Sound DJs an endorsement for Hotel Palomar, I have had the experience of twice entertaining Hotel Palomar wedding receptions. This Hotel is very new and has a delightful modern style with a touch of the Art Deco style. The decorum and design is very sharp for a signature event, where you want to impress with very pleasant surroundings. The staff are friendly and helpful, they work in tandem towards a pleasing experience for the client and guests. I have also stayed at the Hotel as a guest, the Hotel rooms are of the highest quality, with super design and furnishings. I think this Hotel is one of Philadelphia's greatest secrets. I look forward to entertaining at the Hotel Palomar again. Paul Evans - President and Founder Silver Sound Entertainment.
